This drum lamp shade from Serena & Lily I desperately wanted to buy and use for a ceiling fixture shade, but it's $238 price tag wasn't going to cut it.
I searched everywhere for an affordable drum shade in the nursery's color palette and had no success for any amount I was willing to pay, but I did find this shade at Pottery Barn that had sage green trim around the top and bottom and happened to be on clearance for $13.99.
I purchased more of the dark brown grosgrain ribbon from JoAnn's and some fabric glue, a light kit from the Home Depot turned the shade upside down and was able t achieve a  similar look to what I wanted at a fraction of the cost.
